Thank You

Thank you for your mercy, Lord,
And thank you for your love.
Thank you for your holy word
Which came from heaven, above.

Thank you for the savior
Who came to earth and died
That we might truly savor 
Your grace, to us, implied.

Thank you for each blessing, good,
For health and strength and life.
Thank you for our daily food
And, even Godly strife.

Thank you for each family
And thank you for each home.
Thank you for eternity
Which, someday soon, will come.

Give us strength, oh Lord, to cope
With problems which we face,
That we may keep that promised hope
To live with you through grace.

Grant to us that you'll forgive
As we repent from ev'ry sin,
That, in eternity we'll live,
In Jesus' blessed name, amen.
